Rhinoplasty (Nose Job Surgery) Costs Northern Virginia
Dr. V performs rhinoplasty procedure for her patients in and around Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, and Warrenton. The cost of this procedure may vary from one practice to another based on several factors, and in some cases it may even differ from one patient to another at the same practice.
The following factors may impact the overall cost of the procedure:
Where the Practice is Located
The cost of living in two different regions may not be the same, which will influence the costs of all kinds of goods and services in a particular area. For instance, the cost of rhinoplasty in Chantilly, Northern Virginia, Loudoun County, Fairfax, Prince William, Fauquier, Arlington, Middleburg, Leesburg, Manassas, Warrenton, or nearby areas may differ from the cost in Santa Monica, CA.
Plastic Surgeon’s Fee
The plastic surgeon may charge a fee in accordance with his or her experience, skills, and reputation in performing rhinoplasty. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recommends that patients should choose the surgeon appropriately, and the surgeon’s fee should only be a secondary consideration in the selection.
Anesthesia and Operating Room Costs
If the procedure is performed under general anesthesia the cost may be different compared to a situation where a minor correction to the nose is performed under local anesthesia. A state of the art surgical facility with the latest technology and experienced support staff may charge slightly more than an average facility.
Average Cost of Rhinoplasty
According to the national average figures regarding the cost of various plastic surgery procedures released by the ASPS, the cost of rhinoplasty in 2012 in the United States was $4,493 on average. However, this cost does not include the costs of anesthesia, operating room costs, or other related expenses.
The cost also depends on the length and complexity of the procedure. If the procedure involves revision rhinoplasty to correct the anomalies of a previous nose surgery, the cost may be higher than that of a primary surgery. The cost of a major rhinoplasty involving a complete re-doing of the nose, including correction of structural deformities, implants and cartilage grafting to recreate the nasal framework may be significantly higher than a minor corrective nose surgery.
If the rhinoplasty procedure involves using cartilage from another part of the body, it can add the operative time as well as the overall cost of the procedure. The cost of revision rhinoplasty or a major rhinoplasty procedure may range from $8,000 to $15,000, depending on several factors.
Insurance and Financing
When rhinoplasty is performed as an elective surgery for aesthetic reasons, the patient’s health plan will not provide coverage for the costs. However, if the procedure is performed to correct functional issues, which could include obstructed breathing, the cost of the procedure may be covered under the health insurance plan. Patients can also have the procedure financed through professional medical care finance companies. Payment can be made in convenient installments when rhinoplasty is financed through such third parties.
